Our Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)
Advantages of Building with SIPs
Benefits of choosing to build an energy efficient SIP include a lower cost to heat and cool your home, increased comfort levels, healthier interiors, and knowing that you are doing your part to reduce energy consumption.
This flexible energy efficient technology has proven to be an excellent building solution for many types of construction projects, including residential homes, commercial buildings, community builds and units.
Superior Energy Efficiency
Healthier, Comfortable Interiors
Healthier Indoor Air Quality
Healthy interior environments are important no matter what the building’s purpose. SIP building envelopes create healthier buildings from the inside out. Insulspan SIP-built buildings result in airtight building envelopes, minimizing or eliminating incoming unfiltered air. This means homeowners and commercial building occupants enjoy improved indoor air quality. Just how healthy are SIPs?
The expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation and oriented strand board (OSB) used in the manufacture of Insulspan SIPs meets some of the most stringent standards for indoor air quality.
Our SIPs do not off gas, and do not contain any volatile organic compounds (VOCs), chemicals that can adversely affect the health of an occupant.
Many contaminants, toxins, and other allergens are filtered out of the home. This is because the combination of the air-tightness of Insulspan SIPs and a properly-sized HVAC system creates a healthier building from the inside out.
Airtight Building Envelopes Improve Comfort
How does an airtight building system using Insulspan SIPs improve one’s comfort? First, the higher R-value achieved with SIPs, versus that of stick built construction and traditional batt insulation, means buildings experience less heat loss. This same higher R-value also results in less leakage of conditioned air. Maintaining a consistent temperature throughout a home or commercial building increases occupant comfort.
SIP building envelopes also perform well in blocking and absorbing sound. This sound absorption or blocking includes high frequency noises that often impact one’s quality of life. Spaces built with Insulspan SIPs airtight building envelopes are oftentimes so quiet, owners and occupants refer to them as sanctuaries.
We've been importing and building with Insulspans Panel system (SIPS) for almost a decade.
